Caption: Terra Nova Antarctic model ship. Irish explorer and British Royal Navy petty officer Patrick Keohane (1879-1950) finishing his model of the 'Terra Nova' on 10 August 1911 during the British Antarctic Expedition (1910-1913). Also known as the Terra Nova Expedition (after the ship that brought them there), the primary expedition objectives were scientific. Led by Robert Falcon Scott, the shore party of 34 (including Keohane) spent two seasons exploring on and around the Ross Ice Shelf. Scott and four others died in 1912 returning from their journey to the South Pole. Keohane's model is displayed at the Scott Polar Research Institute, Cambridge, UK.
